Osaka's father Leonard Francois came to Haiti over the weekend to prepare for her daughter's visit.

Naomi Osaka will be in Haiti for 4 to 5 days before she head to the Australian open, her father said. "She will take advantage of her few days of vacation to spend 4 to 5 days in Haiti," he said.

"I would very much like her to have fond memories of the country. She will visit the tourist sites that are related to our great history of people, including the Citadelle Laferrière. This will allow her to have an idea of the history of Haiti. She will taste of course the Haitian cuisine that she loves so much," her father said.
